The GWM P-Series Baja Snake has been revealed as a Raptor-fighting dune-bashing bakkie. Although no power upgrades have been applied, the toughened-up bakkie does gain a roughed body kit and a Fox suspension kit reworked by Shelby.
As detailed by Autohome, the GWM P-Series Baja Snake adopts a new front design with a more aggressive fang-style grille and apron. Additional air vents have been applied to the front of the bonnet and a snorkel has been fitted. At the sides, wide plastic wheel arches have been attached and are connected by a rocker panel beneath the doors.
At the rear, visual changers are minimal but a prominent sports bar housing two spare wheels has been applied to the bed. Baja Snake branding and two black stripes form part of the decal pack that covers the front, top, rear and sides of the bakkie.
Within the cabin, the GWM P-Series Baja Snake has been upholstered with black leather with contrasting orange stitching and detailing. Orange trims have also been fitted to the stop/start button, air vent controls and steering wheel. Sections have been tailored in Alcantara to create a more sporty sensation.
As for power, it’s apparent that the GWM P-Series Baja Snake uses the standard turbocharged 2,0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that delivers 140 kW and 360 N.m of torque to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Supporting this bakkie over the sand dunes is a professional competitive-grade Fox suspension calibrated by Shelby. It supports a set of nitrogen shock absorbers and a 14-stage adjustable high and low damping system. A lift-kit raises the ride by 50,8 mm while the bakkie sits on a set of Toyo RT off-road tyres.
